Science Week Equipment Grant
Grants of up to $1000 will be available to every school with an enrollment of over 200 students that sends one or more teachers to a teacher workshop (limit one grant per school).
These grants will enable teachers to purchase equipment demonstrated in the workshops or other science-related equipment of their choice. All equipment will be shipped directly to the teachers at their school address.
Teacher Workshop attendance is required to participate in this Grant Program.
Schools represented by multiple workshop attendees will be allowed multiple grants but should not exceed the following guidelines:
- All grants will be awarded on a first come, first served basis, as funds are allotted. Participants will be encouraged to submit a “wish list”, as additional funds may be awarded if available.
- $500 grant for one teacher and an additional $250/school for each additional participant with a maximum of three participants total per school ($1000 maximum request per school). However, there are no limits on total teachers participating from one school.
- Teachers in those schools should collaborate to determine how funds should be distributed and submit your requests together. A separate form will be used for each teacher.
Additional information regarding these grants will be available early in 2014
Information on how to order your equipment will be provided on-site at the workshops. All equipment order forms will be submitted to the Pittcon 2014 Science Week Committee. Requests for quotations and prepaid orders to vendors will be placed directly with vendors by the Pittcon 2014 Science Week Committee. Equipment orders will be shipped directly to the teachers at their verified school address.
